I used Eyebright Nettle by HerbPharm http://www.morningstarhealth.com/909173.html
I got it at a local health store, but you can get it online. I believe they also sell a children's formula with no alcohol. I talked with my vet about using a wider-range "allergy" homeopathic tincture, but he said that is a "shotgun" approach. So since I was pretty sure it was grass/weed allergy I used a grass/weed allergy tincture. It's what a person with hayfever would use.
I just put it on his food and the second spring I started before the grass/weeds sprouted and he didn't have any hives/bumps. He occassionally will get teary eyes during full-blown allergy season, but he never got bumps after the 1st year and after the 2nd year I didn't give it to him anymore.
I'm not sure if it will work since we don't know what Dozer is having an allergic reaction to. He's pretty light-skinned are you sure he didn't get a sunburn? I ask because you said it's just on his back. I'm thinking an allergic reaction to grass/weeds would more likely also be on his tummy...but an allergic reaction can be systemic even if it's just to grass.
Also did you use any topical stuff like Frontline? Maybe he had a reaction to that?
Keep in mind I'm not any sort of authority on any of this!!
